Roasted Chicken, Artichoke, Feta and Orzo Salad

Colorful and easy salad to make in advance to serve chilled or room temperature. Using rotisserie chicken limits cooking to boiling pasta. Transports easily. Has a "Greek" flavor, but not traditional. Easily modified for size of group or individual tastes. Add other vegetables (mushrooms, zucchini) as desired. I'm always asked where I bought the salad, I'm assuming that's a compliment.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk dressing ingredients together.
  2. Boil orzo pasta in salted water until al dente. Drain reserving some pasta water.
  3. Place orzo (warm pasta will absorb more of the dressing) and shredded chicken in a large bowl. Add 4 TB of dressing and toss to coat.
  4. Add 2 TB pasta water to remaining dressing.
  5. Add remaining ingredients to orzo and chicken. Toss and refrigerate from 1 hour to overnight.
  6. Toss with remaining dressing before serving.

Great salad. I did add Dijon mustard to the dressing and I added spinach tortellini, red pepper and heart of palm to the salad itself, for more veggies and color.
